A browlift raises the eyebrows and upper eyelids to soften frown lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. This procedure softens the angry or tired look caused by a wrinkled brow. A brow lift is often performed to treat conditions associated with aging, and the procedure may be done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to achieve a more harmonious facial appearance. A brow lift (also called Forehead lift) is also appropriate for treatment of certain inherited traits, such as younger adults who have a low brow or who already have deep frown lines due to stress. Most Austin brow lift patients are between ages 40 and 60 years old.
The brow lift surgery takes 1 to 2 hours. It is considered an outpatient procedure.
A brow lift can cause temporary swelling, numbness, headaches, and bruising. Possible itching and hair loss may result from the traditional method.
Brow Lift Recovery
After a brow lift, you can be back to work in 7 to 10 days (usually sooner for endoscopic browlift method). For strenuous activity after a browlift you must wait several weeks. Full recovery after a browlift is abut 2 to 3 weeks. Limit sun exposure for several months.
Austin Brow Lift Risks
Browlift can cause injury to facial nerve, which may result in loss of movement. Also, a possible reaction to anesthesia and risk of asymmetry. Formation of a broad scar and hair loss along the scar edges are rare with browlift.
The results of a browlift usually lasts 5 to 10 years.
